A group exhibition by veteran Iranian artists is underway at Vista Art Gallery in Tehran.

Titled ‘Norouz, New Day, Spring’, the exhibition features a series of paintings, sculptures and installations, under the theme of spring and the Iranian New Year (Norouz) celebrations, the Persian art magazine ‘Tandis’ reported.

Norouz is the traditional Iranian festival of spring, which starts at the exact moment of the vernal equinox, commencing the start of the spring. The event is celebrated on March 20-21 each year.

Celebrated for at least 3000 years, Norouz is deeply rooted in the rituals and traditions of the ancient people of Persia (old name of Iran). Today the festival is celebrated in Iran, Iraq, India, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and other countries.

Curated by the young painter Behnam Kamrani, the exhibit displays works of art by 20 skilled artists, including Fereydoun Ave, Farah Ossouli, Zahra Ebrahimi, Abdolhamid Pazouki, Azin Rostami, Sara Qazi, Kourosh Golnari, Negar Naderipour, Gizella Varga Sinai and Banafsheh Hemmati among others.

The artworks are on display until April 4 at the gallery, located in No. 11, 12th St., Mir-Emad Ave., Tehran.
